A couple weeks ago our yellow lab with a history of eating small items of clothing couldn't keep food down for four days. Indications were she might have an intestinal blockage. Of course, we needed to take her in on a Sunday, so our vet was closed. We had to use an emergency vet, and the estimate was $775 minimum and $2200 on the high end. Having insurance gave us the financial stability to be thorough with her care. Two days and $900 dollars later our dog was fully recovered. We spent about $600 dollars total out-of-pocket ($500 of it our deductible). Embrace refunded the rest. I would recommend Embrace to anyone.
